A report on Adenosine triphosphate, Cofactor (biochemistry) and Metabolism
When consumed in metabolic processes, it converts either to adenosine diphosphate (ADP) or to adenosine monophosphate (AMP).- Adenosine triphosphate
It is also a precursor to DNA and RNA, and is used as a coenzyme.- Adenosine triphosphate
Many contain the nucleotide adenosine monophosphate (AMP) as part of their structures, such as ATP, coenzyme A, FAD, and NAD+.- Cofactor (biochemistry)
These group-transfer intermediates are called coenzymes.- Metabolism
One central coenzyme is adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the universal energy currency of cells.- Metabolism
Therefore, these cofactors are continuously recycled as part of metabolism.- Cofactor (biochemistry)

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is a coenzyme central to metabolism.
This contrasts with eukaryotic DNA ligases, which use ATP to form the DNA-AMP intermediate.
